Greetings delegates! My name is Rosemary Ho, a senior at Dominican International School Taipei. It is with great pleasure to serve as your president of the Human Rights Council this year. HSINMUN XVIII will be my twelfth conference and fifth time chairing. I began my MUN journey in the eighth grade as a naive and reserved delegate. Despite my initial uneasiness, I soon found myself captivated by the enthusiasm each person possessed upon entering the conference room. Consequently, I have been holding onto this experience dearly as I embarked on my MUN journey. As an avid public speaker and human rights advocate, I enjoy every moment I spend debating, devising, and discovering. MUN has allowed me to share these experiences with like-minded individuals: it provides a platform where all voices matter. MUN has also enabled me to find my voice -- and to learn to appreciate other people's -- in an environment that is as ever-changing as the society we live in today. Apart from MUN, I love literature, classical music, and cats. My passion for MUN stems from the infinite opportunities and experiences it provides, and I hope you can develop a love for MUN that equates to -- if not exceeds -- my own. See you in October.

Hello, delegates! I’m Anderson Chung, a current sophomore at Hsinchu County American School. It is with great gratitude and honor that I serve as the Deputy President of the Human Rights Council. I joined MUN in seventh grade and have attended ten conferences ever since, which means that I have started my MUN journey rather earlier than many others at my school. From the instant I stepped into the gates of my first conference, I was in awe of how confident and professional everyone looked in the room. I began to sense my legs shaking as I made my way across to my seat — I have to admit, I only spoke once in my first conference.  I remember being disinterested and still traumatized by the anxiety and worry I felt the whole day at my previous conference. It was my friend who finally urged me to take a shot with the new MUN club my school started. My reluctance towards this club then began to slowly fade away as time passed, looking back on that shy, timid kid who once was even scared to open his mouth and mind to the room. I couldn’t help but be grateful for the way this experience has crafted and shaped me into the person I am today. But anyways, about myself, I enjoy playing the piano (sometimes making my own music), drawing (preferably sketching people), creating my own stories (I’m currently working on a novel) and watching movies & shows (who doesn’t). As a person who has stood in the shoes of a nervous, shy, and new delegate, I promise to do the best I can to provide help to my fellow delegates in HRC. I look forward to meeting you all at the conference. Thank you very much.
